We do all work as a team. The downside is that people, especially women, can be cliquish and passive aggressive towards coworkers they do not like.
They do, but it depends on the group of people. We all pull together, no questions, when a patient is not doing well or having a sudden event.
Freedom to work independently
You have to be the sort of person who plunges into your day and not in frequent need of support. There are times we all need it, of course, and it’s provided.
I don’t know the percentages of men and women, but hospital management and staffing has been consistently women. I’ve never seen discouragement for gender reasons.
Attitude towards older colleagues
At 40, I am not treated any different as an employee.
There are, but I do not use them.
It is put to our attention regularly.
We have many things offered to help balance work and home
Who wouldn’t be proud to work at the 3rd Best children’s hospital in the country?
Most things are handicapped accessible, but there are a few places which could be designed better. People who are able to get around with no help, need more automatic doors.
I do not care for patients directly, but “pushing the paper” and getting the information you need can be a challenge. A job in PICU is difficult at times, no matter your job title.
Inclusive / Diverse
Very accepting of other cultures, LGBTQ, proper understanding of needs of religion that are not commonly staffed for.
Suggestions for improvement
- I cannot think of anything general to be worked on. Overall, I like working here. I don’t dread going to work. But no place is ever perfect.
What I like about the company
We all pull together when something major is going on, whether on the job or something more personal (birth, death, wedding, etc.) It makes for a lot of bonding and understanding within groups. The nursing groups can be especially close.
What I dislike about the company
Making heavy expenditures while cutting benefits we formerly had. We used to get 100% pay for health leave of absence, now it’s 65%, with 35% supplemental pay in another policy. This costs extra to us, and you may not get approved for it, even you are approved for initial medical disability. It’s not something anyone wants to deal with at a time of crisis for yourself.
